Anthony and Joe Russo have revealed that they would love to see Black Widow get her own solo film.
There has been many calls for Black Widow to get her own film in recent years; Clark Gregg added his voice to that campaign earlier this month.
Now Anthony and Joe Russo – who have worked with actress Scarlett Johansson on Captain America: The Winter Solider and Captain America: Civil War – have described Black Widow as one of the ‘richest’ characters in the Marvel universe.
When asked if they would like to see a Black Widow solo movie at a press junket in China, Joe said: “Hell yeah! We love that character!”
“And we love Scarlett,” added Anthony.
Joe continued: “We find that the character is one of, if not the richest character in the Marvel universe.
“A very complex character, haunted by demons, and her understanding of the world is fascinating. I think there is a lot that can be done with that character.”
The Russo brothers are set to return to the director’s chair later this year with Captain America: Civil War, which is the third solo film for this character and the second Marvel project for the directors.
The movie will see them reunite with the likes of Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, and Anthony Mackie. But they work with Robert Downey Jr, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Elizabeth Olsen, and Paul Bettany for the first time – as they all step into this franchise.
The new movie will see the Avengers divided over the regulation of superhuman activity. Our favourite heroes who were once friends, will now become adversaries and side with either Captain America or Iron Man.
And the Russo brothers are set to stick with the Marvel Universe as they are set to direct Avengers: Infinity War, which will see them take over the helm from Joss Whedon. Filming is expected to get under way later this year.
Captain America: Civil War is released 29th April.
